In 1975, MG's owners British Leyland announced a limited edition run of 750 cars to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the start of MG production, albeit somewhat tardily as the firm was actually in its 52nd year! All were built in GT coupé form finished in British Racing Green with a contrasting gold stripe running the car's full length just below the side windows. The interior was trimmed in black cloth and there was additional 'MG' commemorative badging on the wings, while other special features included tinted window glass, head restraints, overdrive transmission and larger wheels/tyres from the V8-powered model. Mechanically the Anniversary cars were standard and each came with a dashboard-mounted plaque.
This Anniversary model has had only two previous owners. The car was fully restored between 1990 and 1992 and is presented in generally excellent condition, with only slight pitting to the brightwork and no signs of shrinkage or cracks to the rubber bumpers. It appears to have covered only a minimal mileage since restoration, the engine bay being very tidy and the under-body spotless. Last taxed in 1991 and last MoT'd in 1993, 'LCW 909N' currently displays a total of 82,974 miles on the odometer and comes with extensive servicing and restoration history. Offered with a BMIHT Certificate and Swansea V5 it further benefits from a fitted car cover which is included in the sale. In storage for several years, the car will require re-commissioning before further use and thus is sold strictly as viewed.
